Can my PC run GTA IV?

If you're really that desparate to find out, you could've just ran it.

You should be able to, but don't hold out high hopes for the video settings. Depends alot at what res you're planning to use, really.

I'm not "desparate", and i just can't install ir 'till I finish downloading the game. I didn't meant to disturb you, i should erase that "aaaanyone" comment.

Don't worry. You should most probably be able to run it. :)

I'm done, my brand-new Radeon HD5770 vaporX just arrived, so now it should be running fine. I changed a little bit my configuration: Still the same processor, AMD Phenom II 965 X4 @3600, 4GB 1333 DDR3 ram and regular 7200rpm sata drives.

I tried to open the game just after the driver instalation (after reboot) and the game just hangs in a black screen. I'm not even able to do alt+tab, nothing at all!

Anyone knows what this is about? Thanx!

hmm thats weird...

try uninstall gta4, restart, reinstall, restart again, and try run it. if it still has issues, could be a driver problem but you said u just got the new ones so probably not that.

so you have the same cpu, motherboard, ram, hard drive etc as you had when you installed the OS. if you change at least the CPU or motherboard, you should reinstall the OS (windows or w/ev) because it doesnt really like it. i think some issues with drivers may arise etc.

well we wont be able to help you crack the game since its illegal and blablabla so yep.

as for running the game, intel graphics are just shit for gaming. you could run san andreas but i highly doubt you'd be able to run gta4.

Don't expect anything decent with an Intel GMA-powered PC when it comes to hardcore gaming. Casual and low-end games like SA, but like what WRX said, don't bother running it on an integrated graphics chip. You might think of shelling some more cash on a desktop with a good graphics card, lots of memory and a beefy CPU as IV is really really resource-hungry for a game.

well, after i recived the laptop it appears that i have new video card (nvidia geforce 6100)

now i want to play it with no lagging on low graphics can i ?

Nope. You might be able to run it, but don't expect good frame rates even at low settings. Any four-digit Nvidia card that has 4 or below on the second digit is expected to be piss-poor when it comes to high-end games.

-CPU- AMD Athlon II X2 255(Dual Core) with a 2 mB chache and Clock speed of 3.1 Ghz

-RAM- 1x2Gb Stick of DDRII

-Video-(This is an onboard video Card as i am saving my money for my future card) ATI Radeon X2100(512mB)(IGP)

Hey guys! I was just wondering if my graphics card is compatible with GTA IV? I've got an ATI Radeon 3450, well the packet says 3450 but CPUZ says its 3400. I don't know which one to believe :lol:

I've all the requirements the game needs, just the graphics card I'm a bit concerned with

i reckon a 5770 would go well. they're about $150-200. you can get a powercolor one for $167 from MSY. if you wanna spend more than that, the 5850 is around $350.

well if the box says its 3450 then it is. CPU-Z probably just sees it as a 3400 series ATi.

For that, I don't think it will ever run at all. Maybe a slideshow, but I'm pretty sure it will be a lot worse than you can imagine.

Hi all, I found this thread via Google. I've used your site in the past to download GTA: San Andreas mods.

Straight and to the point, my specs are:

Asus M4A785-M mobo

On-board ATI Radeon HD 4200

6 gigs DDR2 PC800 RAM

AMD Athlon II X2 Dual Core, 2.9 GHz

I'm mostly concerned with the on-board GPU, which I'm 99.9% sure is shit. You can probably see that I'm not a serious gamer, and I really don't know a whole lot when it comes to this kind of thing. I just want to know if I'll be able to run this game at its minimum settings with no hassle. My monitor is currently set at 1366 x 768, but I'm unsure what resolution I'd be able to run this game at.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Don't expect anything decent with a rig like that. GTA IV is a very, very resource-intensive application, and you'll need to shell out $$$ on equipment just to run it smoothly. Which means that you'll probably be stuck with SA instead.

Haven't yet purchased a 360 or PS3 and I still haven't played GTA IV. That bums the shit out of me so if either of my two systems meet the cut I'm going to go out and buy it for PC. Here's the main desktop my parents, sister, and I use. We've had it for a few years. Sorry if I typed too much for the processor. I'm just copying and pasting what the diagnostics tool is saying.

Operating system - Windows Vista™ Home Basic

Processor - AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz

Memory - 2046MB RAM

Graphics card - ATI Radeon HD 4670

Here's the specs to my laptop. I've had it for a couple years too.

Operating system - Windows Vista™ Home Premium

Processor - Intel® Core2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz

Memory - 3582MB RAM

Graphics card - NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS

So yeah, there's my specs. I appreciate any help in advance.

-----

EDIT: Forgot to add that both systems are 32-bit operating systems.

Nah man, those won't work with it. I've even tried it on those same specs that you posted as your laptop except with a better GPU and it still won't run at all. It's a really, really powerful game that can't be ran on those and at least be playable. Sorry :/.

Damn. Bummer. But hey, I have some money saved up - I could invest in some things at least for the desktop. Actually, I was thinking I'd sell my laptop anyway if it couldn't run GTA IV because I only used it for porn and live gigs so I could just build a new system or upgrade my desktop. What do you think would need to happen to run it really well? To look and play better than the console versions. I don't want to shell out the cash on hardware and still not not be able to play IV.
